    I just got a BRS dual reactor which i will be using for my gfo and I want to run carbon in the other chamber. What carbon do you recommend? Ideally id get BRS carbon but its too expensive due to shipping prices.

    Any tips on using the reactor with carbon and gfo?

    Also what carbon do you recommend and stores to get it from?

    I'll have to look but I think I've got a whole big thing of the brs rox stuff I could sell you at whatever their asking for it minus shipping. Had got it thinking thinking I could run it in bags as well and it didn't end up working out.

    On the gfo check and double check your tumble rate. I recently had a problem with mine, I set it and all was good then it ended up changing don't know if it was an air pocket or what but it ended up tumbling way to fast and clouded the tank. Didn't hurt anything but made me freak out till I could figure it out.

    FWIW there should NEVER be any tumbling of either GAC or GFO. You just want to "lift the bed" so to speak.

    What Gresham said
    Tumbling will cause the media to breakdown
